Dan Scavino Ridicules CNN’s Jim Acosta For Reporting on Trump’s Post-Irma Florida Trip


Dan Scavino and Jim Acosta are exchanging fire after the White House social media director took issue with a tweet from the CNN correspondent about President Trump‘s trip to Florida.

The commotion began after Acosta posted this picture of wreckage in an area where Trump was on tour yesterday to assess the damage caused by Hurricane Irma:

Scavino noticed Acosta’s tweet, though he clearly did not approve of how the CNN correspondent framed his words:

Acosta responded by telling Scavino to “have a second cup of coffee” and see how his original tweet pointed out the damage that needs to be be cleared away.

In recent months, Acosta has become an increasingly visible media figure due to his tough reporting on the White House. Acosta’s antics have drawn the ire of the Trump Administration, though critics have panned Acosta by referring to him as an anti-Trump activist and an attention seeker.
